You know what's the best answer (and a f**k you) to all the people who have bullied you? Go on and work so hard that they can't help but be jealous of your success. Actually, I feel that bullying mostly comes from a place of insecurity, I mean, why else would you be so cruel to someone for no reason at all?

Husain Saify proved everyone wrong by being more successful than most people, at just the age of 21. He's running an IT-service startup 'HackerKernel' and the best part is that his company has already crossed an annual turnover of over â¹1 crore in just three years. 

His company basically provides mobile and web application development services to over 200 companies both in India and abroad, including countries like the USA, Japan, and Dubai. So yes, he's doing big things.

It all started in Husain's room in Bhopal and ended up becoming one of the most successful startups in Madhya Pradesh. It all started when he got his first computer at the age of 12. Starting off by just playing games, he developed his first website idea, which was 'how about creating a website that allowed people to download games?'

After gaining basic technical knowledge at school, he started visiting the local internet café to learn even more. And, then he learned how to make his first website. Talking to The Better India, he said, “It was funny because I had no idea how to make it live at the time.”

On his journey of becoming a web developer, he poured everything he has in programming, learning PHP and javascript, to build a closed social network website using PHP called Trendyfi.

But soon, tech gurus started trolling him by calling him the 'kid who had stumbled into programming'. But, he didn't let the trolling and bullying slow him down.

The first website he built was for a local burger joint in Bhopal. He said, “The man sold amazing burgers but was hardly aware of how online delivery could help him earn revenue. When he asked if I knew anybody willing to build a website, I volunteered. I worked for one week and made a website, which he loved. He handed â¹5,000 to me. A big amount at the time, since no commercials were ever discussed. I was really happy! When I researched, I realised such websites cost over 25k!”

Then, after buying the domain HackerKernel.com, he started connecting with people and working as a freelance developer.

With him getting more and more work, he decided to drop out of college. He said, “Of course, my parents wanted me to complete my graduation. But I wanted to give my 100% to my work.”

He also realized how he would need a partner to keep up with all the work, so he got his friend, Rithik Soni, on board. In less than three years, his small startup that started in his room and basement moved to a bigger office. 

The company they built today has 25 engineers who serve 200 companies, including Eduzina, Zingfy, Madcue, Fast2sms, Quants Investment Strategy and consultancy service LLP, Yantralive, Deeptalent etc.

He finished off by saying, “There is no substitute for hard work. I have worked for 18 to 20 hours a day to reach where I am. Put in your best efforts, and glory will follow. Take risks, but ensure they are calculated by weighing the pros and the cons.”
